A Great Rap Industry Drama
7 May 2003 | by FilmWatchaSee all my reviews

Platinum is a great show. And rap isn't just a theme to add to a music industry show. The people, the records, and the brutal way of handling work is directly linked to the rap theme. And them the family theme is also very powerful, and is the things the brothers who own the company have to deal with. They have real problems, like company debt and such. It's not at all sterotypical black people, but real people trying to make it in the rap world.
